Gotham Stakes Next for Speightscity

Withers runner-up Speightscity is likely to make his next appearance in the Gotham on March 3, according to Marcelo Arenas, assistant to trainer Gary Contessa. The son of Speightstown proved the best of the rest in Saturday’s race, finishing 1 ¾ lengths ahead of Tiger Walk.

 

“He had a very bad trip [when fifth in the Count Fleet],” Arenas said. “But he’s a nice horse, and we really think he’s the best horse we have in the barn. We believed in him, and he showed us yesterday he can do it. He ran a big race.”

 

Speightscity checked in fifth behind Alpha in the Count Fleet after a stumbling start and a wide trip. A maiden winner closing weekend at Saratoga going 1 1/8 miles, he finished ninth in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile and eighth in the Grade 2 Remsen at Aqueduct before winning an inner-track optional claimer on December 15 to cap his 2-year-old season.
